How big are lemurs? How big are you? Let’s measure each other to see how we compare.

In this 1 hour long activity for 2-3rd Graders, we learn about the different kinds of lemurs and their shapes and sizes.

Developed to accompany the Ako children’s book series, each of the six Ako books feature a different type of lemur, from Bitika the baby mouse lemur to No-Song the Indri to Bounce the White Sifaka.

Use the Ako Educator’s Guide to learn more about lemurs and gain background information before carrying-out the lesson.

See Lemurs, Little and Large to view the lesson. All 21 Ako conservation education lessons are available to download at
